School Photos with Personality
Timeless & candid school photography for schools, preschools, and daycares
School photos don't have to be boring!
It IS possible to have great school portraits that capture a child's personality and uniqueness! I work hard at helping kids relax and feel at ease, so they can enjoy having their picture taken and show off their natural expressions and personality. And parents love the results. These are the type of school portraits you'll be proud to display in your home!
Kind Words From Schools
Testimonials from parents
Hi, I'm Valerie - photographer
and mom to six kids
As a mom of six, I understand that each child is unique and special. My goal as a school photographer is to capture a little of each child's personality. I use a bit of conversation along with fun prompts to help each child relax so I can capture their natural smiles and expressions.
Frequently asked questions
How do parents order photos?
I provide an online proofing gallery with 2-5 images of each child, in both color and black & white. Parents can order both prints and digital photos directly from the gallery.
What ages and school sizes can you photograph?
I photograph kids of all ages, from infants to teens. I can work with school sizes from 20 to 140 students.
When do you offer school portraits?
While school photos are traditionally taken in the fall, I offer school photos at any time of year from fall to spring. For daycares, summer photos are also an option.
Do you offer group/staff/sibling photos?
Yes, I do. If class photos are desired, they are included for no additional charge. Staff photos are also free of charge. I can also do sibling photos.
Can you do photos outdoors?
Absolutely! Outdoor portraits are some of my favorites. School photos can be scheduled outdoors during the early fall and late spring, weather permitting.
